    I had a look at this thread last week, was going to buy Trico but ended up going with UNIWIPER after seeing an ad online, was sent via express post, shipping was delayed because of the christmas busy period, they were almost half the price compared to everyone else and even came came with a free gift, they've gained a life time customer thats for sure

    Slug powered VZ, a VE Calais & your mum.
    I recently cleaned the blades on the VZ. Used isopropyl alcohol and scrubbed them with my wife’s tooth brush. Then I sprayed them again and some into a cloth and wiped them clean. Then treated them with a smidge of Aerospace 303.

    Work like a boss! I’ve never thought to clean the blades, always figured swapping them with new ones was the go.

    Not anymore.

    Also treat the windscreen with Rain-x. It was an AmmoNYC vid on YouTube that made me into a wiper blade tight arse.

    Then have a cold beer and thank yourself for a job well done
